According to a new book called “Barack Obama: The Story,” smoked pot in high school. We assume he also smoked pot through college and we definitely know he smoked cigarettes until last year.
Instead of being sympathetic to smokers, he raised taxes on tobacco to fund SCHIP and he also set up The Family Smoking Prevention Act, in 2009. That act transferred tobacco to the FDA, which is now trying to put graphic labels on cigarettes, a case that he may very well lose in the Supreme Court.
It is interesting to note that those of privilege always think the rules do not apply to them, just to the peasants. Based on his background and behavior he is a hypocrite.
